    Hahaa, yeh I did say I was going to get one... The 3.0Tdi on my journey would have been just a little to thirsty since my right foot is 3 stone heavier than any other part of my body. The 2.7 cruises so well. Picked her up from Leicester and on the way back to reading saw an average of 58.9mph i was happy with that.

    Spec - S-Line, Bose, Parking sensors (beeeeeep beep beep FREAKING BEEP) DIS, Sports seats, 1 owner and full Audi history up until sept this year.

    So today I thought I'd rip the face off the Phantom... turns out the first time is always the most painful and least rewarding (what? haha). Dropped the Torx bit on the under tray several times, cut my finger but after a long fight the following is COMPLETE:

    - Joey'd
    - Black grill surround
    - Did not De-Tango, was going to but not sure why it kind of appeals to me with them there, I'll de-tango once the OEM projectors are here....

    Photos I guess... (there are a few things on order, waiting on the post cough cough Olethalb that's your fault man)

    If you compare the first photo I put up and the new ones you'll see the chrome surround around the light is now black. You need to remove the lights, use a heat gun to soften the sealant and then pull apart... spray the bits you want to and re-assemble then by pushing the lens back on and seal it by heating it up again...

    This shows you the basic idea- if it helps? ( I know it's a mk4 not Audi haha )

    Been a while since an update... Coilovers are here, going on this weekend if things go to plan and the world doesn't end


    So it was time to get the paint up to a better standard, annoying it's winter so all the salt, tar, grime needs taking off everytime I touch the car. So I thought I would tackle it in stages, rather than the whole car at once, working top down. There is one BEFORE shot of the boot, the whole car is pretty much like that, there is an after shot of the roof + a mid stage shot of the boot lid. I will get finished ones up soon with a decent camera, not iPhone ha!

    Roof - Done
    Top off doors + A and C pillars - Done
    Boot lid - Done

    Doors - to do
    Bonnet - to do
    Wings and flanks - to do
    Bumpers - to do

    Ordered up two new lights cheap at £14.99 very powerful and show up all the marks, urgh!

    Also, got some white '2' LED style lights and white fog's to finish off the look at the moment, from Trups - top seller!

    Thanks, took most work on the roof, stained in bird mess and holograms took the longest... boot was EASY! just the rest of the car to go.

    It's quite simple to learn, I got a Rotary Polisher kits from elite car care then worked on a small patch gaining confidence, it's pretty much impossible to burn the paint and a Dual Action (da) is long winded and pain to use. Better and quicker results with rotary setup.

    Hope all had a good Christmas day.

    Santa got me a bluetooth XCarlink connection device for my A4. I ran one in the TT and I like how simple and effective they are for the money and this evening while everyone was alseep from overfeeding and drinking I got to it and whipped the car apart.

    A few things I noticed before the install when I dropped the glove box off.

    1- the reason for only warm air on the passenger side= the complete LACK of a motor which is annoying as hell (appreciate if anyone has the PN for this)

    2- there is also no motor for what I presume is the recirculation flap under the glove box, not that I ever use it but I'll get one anyway.

    3- there were two loose cut wires laying on the glove box from what looks like a tacky DIY handsfree and stuff... not sure but they got ripped out.


    The install + Photos of the lack of motors on the climate control (sorry iPhone photos):






    First thing was to hide the microphone... I had wanted to put it in the light housing BUT the cable was too short, and I didn't want it on display so I set about a small hole in a blank to tuck it away. Sound quality is still good and clear! thin layer of silicon to stop splits. Blue tack to hold in place while glue set. I left a bit in to absorb bumps and support the mic.

















    Next was to install the SD/USB/ control unit + bluetooth connector. I wanted them easily accessible but also no wires on show or rattling around the place. So I marked out on the glove box and drilled two small holes. Then cut out the pre cut blank for the CD changer and fed the wires through that.








    I had wanted to use a thin bit of steel to make a simple bracket but I forgot to bring it with me. So in the mean time I sacrificed a coat hanger to the job and bent a little bracket and wrapped it in duck tape to stop and rattles- it will do for a few days until I have a new bracket made up...also tucked the excess wires and ran the new ones.










    Finally finished it all and works a treat, really like the location and it's all out of the way, can still use shelf in the glove box, just need to re-do that bracket and it'll be all done!

    Ahh Carl, sounds like a plan - hope that DIY helped you out. Seems about a two day job over the weekend if you've got all the parts. I'm not sure if a B6 platform would also work (just to increase part options) certainly seemed straightforward considering the end results for that guy over on AZ. I'll sling you a PM if I spot any that are breaking.

    Car Park looks familiar, you work in reading too? haha

    Well plans are wheels next - but it's getting Bobby's magical remaps at the moment, waiting for revision 1 and then run it and see if it needs any tweeks. Getting EGR and DPF taken out so I can cut them out and blank them off!

    Took a trip this weekend to Olly for a swearing, painful weekend of De-Cat and DPF removal...

    Fist the Pre-Cat which was ok to undo, only snapping one stud, welded a new on in and new nut but cut it out and piped it, the EGT sensor was fiddly to get out and had to bend back the clip for the expansion tank. which bent back fine.




    Then the BEAST of a DPF... didn't take long to drop it off the car thanks to olly for giant strength, snapped two studs as they were seized up corroded. two new nuts and bolts for them. They measured up and olly got his weld on, almost artistic












    Big shout to olethalb again for his help. Time to address the straw like intake system and I'll get some pipes to fabricate a new induction route. Should free up some throttle response and noise from the V6

    waiting on my mapper to sort out the DPF removal, we ran two options but it still goes into limp mode, throwing up two errors... he's working on it but for now I'm 0-60 NEVER and 55-60mpg... no boost will do that, forced to cruise at 50mph BORING and annoying. sorted soon though



    - on another note, I meant to do the Clear Corner mod, so set about that and decided to run some regular 5 light LED's for brighter sidelights. Looks good, I'll get some more photos' up soon.
